The Crowbar Groningen Totally Rocks 49 29th August

This week’s show is dedicated to The Crowbar in Groningen because it is the best god damn pub in the world.  FACT.  One of the proprietors, either Nathalie or Esther, put up a couple of cracking tunes on FB just before I did the show so I just had to play those 2 plus a few from bands that have played The Crowbar and a few more that I know the punters in said top class drinking establishment would like.  So first up it’s the Hex Dispensers, who are regulars on This Show Rocks and are playing this Sunday in The Crowbar.  Then it’s the two songs that got me thinking of Groningen in the first place- Jay Reatard and The Moonhearts.  Next it’s the Red Dons, The Estranged, PIL and a relatively new one from The BuzzcocksFuck Mountain are actually playing two gigs in Dublin this Saturday night.  First as part of the Retro Revival in Sweeny’s and then at midnight with Lurch in Whelans. They are followed by Zulu as Kono, Drive Like Jehu, Big Business, Fear, Turbonegro and Henry Rollins.  Things finish up with a smattering of garage from Dan Sartain, The Oblivians and Low Culture.  If you are ever lucky enough to find yourself in Holland, do whatever it takes to get to the Crowbar.  You can thank me later.

    Ernest Crackleton Jr. modeling his Radioactive International t-shirt, on the upper deck of the San Francisco Bay Ferry

    With the new school season just around the corner, Sir Ernest Crackleton & Son go on a heroic expedition, following in the footsteps of Otis Redding and go headed for the ‘Frisco bay, watchin’ the ships roll in, and then watch them roll away again, sittin’ on the dock of the bay, wastin’ time, and other stuff, while listening to an ace selection of recordings from 1902-1950 along the way. Will Ernest Jr. leave his heart in San Francisco? Tune in and find out!
